SCFC Links: Nathan Redmond
Stoke Loud & Proud’s Marc Espley has been busy taking a look at some rumoured transfer targets.
First up, he concentrates on Norwich City’s 22 year old winger Nathan Redmond.
Redmond’s style of play is direct and he loves to take players on with close ball control and pace. To say he’s direct would be an understatement!
Whilst playing at his previous club Birmingham City, he became close friends with our own Jack Butland and that friendship could have a small sway on any potential transfer decision.
With Norwich relegated to the Championship, Redmond will be a man in demand. Although not a regular starter during Norwich’s campaign, Redmond showed his quality over the season and was instrumental during England’s recent Toulon Tournament success.
Should Stoke be interested, Mark Hughes and co. will hope Redmond will be looking to relocate closer to his home town of Birmingham, although these small carrots shouldn’t overlook the fact Stoke are an extremely attractive proposition to prospective signings. Ninth place finishes three years on the bounce doesn’t come through luck.
Redmond is a man most Stoke fans would like to see join the club and I’d suggest bidding will begin around the £8 million mark.
